A Custom Chrome ex box gave my C1 HDI 13 brake. A Synergy 2 module set on 6. ZX1 added to engine/gearbox/transmission. BHP up from 54 to 100 @ plus 15C.Recently added ZX1 to my fuel system(should have added ZX1 2 years ago) The engine response has improved even more, and thats an understatement! And all this using no more than 3500 RPM! The red line is 4400RPM! If anyone wishes you can contact me email email@example.com (read more)

Strongly recommend the Vauxhall Astra GSi Turbo as it's as quick as type R's and stands out from any other Mk4 Astra's. I bought mine when it was 12 months old and it's got extras like fully leather Recaro heated seats, cruise control and Irmscher grill. I'm in no hurry what so ever to get rid. (read more)

Exellent car all round, but could handle better. Kills Type Rs in a straight line but the honda makes more pace on the twisty stuff. 0-60 is down for 7 secs but all that have been tested went under 7 to an average of 6.5! East to tune with the turbo but more power is not what this car needs. (read more)

These cars are great, there aren't many vehicle you can buy in this price range that perform so well in every category. I find the Vauxhall 2ltr engine to be very economical when driven sensibly. The half leather Recaro seats are very comfortable. The boot space is great and holds two huge suit cases - I can't fault the car to be honest. I work away on the oil rigs so don't get the pleasure of driving it much, hence it's only just gone over 24000 miles. It has full service history and is... (read more)

I think that the Vauxhall Astra GSi Turbo is a good all round car and the Arden Blue is a really sexy colour (read more)

Have a Vauxhall Astra black GSi on a 53 plate. Company car with 63,000 on the clock.
Serviced every year and 'cos it's a company car have not paid out any cash. However now have the option to purchase it.
Having read your page you all know the pros and cons. Anyone got any thoughts as to purchasing the car and selling on in about 6 months. What can I expect to get for it?
Thanks for your help. (read more)

I'd wanted another performance Astra ever since I parted with my Mk 2 GTe 16v that I had owned for 5 years and loved to bits. Having owned both a Golf VR6 and a 306 GTi-6 I decided as soon as I could afford a Mark 4 GSi I'd buy one and even though I've not had it long I'm starting to fall in love with it. I do miss the 6 gears I had on the pug though and it's a pain to reverse because of that spoiler in the middle of the back window but otherwise it's a great car and not unlike an updated Mk...

I brought my Vauxhall Astra GSI turbo in April, and still love it. I am going to keep this as standard as I can.
The only thing I've added is a stereo system.
The best thing about having one of these cars, is that when your driving around, you don't see many on the road. I had a Vectra GSI before this, and it seemed like every man and his dog had one. Mine is an Arden blue one, so they are even more rare. (read more)

I bought my Vauxhall Astra GSi Turbo from Jamjar. Saved £2500 however I spent that on Full leather, Electronic climate control and rain sensor pack. I have had it three months done 2700 miles. I've only added an irmscher grill, autostyle mats and quick shift gear throw from regal. Next mod will be a full exhaust system, thinking of a BTB system with courtenay's hi-flow pre cat and no cat, should be good for 20-25 bhp. (read more)

An expensive Astra ...but does seem to have plenty of options available, mine came with the lot except rain sensing wipers...had irmscher alloys fitted and in pearlescent black which really does make the car a real eye catcher...feels very safe to drive and even though im still in the "running in stage" its hard not to let that turbo carry u off effortlessly approaching 80 before u know it !! all i need now is that exhaust changing ....any ideas on a siutable aftermarket pipe ??
